Probably the best part of being in Thailand is that you’re not in China. Leaving Shanghai found me in the back seat of the fastest driving cab driver I’ve every experienced. I was 99% I was 100% going to die. I can report that in-fact I did not die and made it to Bangkok.
Bangkok is stupid hot, a little less dirty, and way less polluted.
I had the weekend in Bangkok to look around. You’ll see below I did the Grand Palace Temple, The Gold Mount (sucks), and the Weekend Market. The boat ride is how I got to the Grand Palace. I probably should have tried to do more but the locals kept lying to me telling me attractions were closed, in an effort to try to get me to go to some outlet market in which they would get a kick back for sending me. Not Cool!! So I failed to see the Reclining Buda which is supposed to be amazing!!!
On Sunday I went to the Chatuchak Weekend Market. I took the local transit which is incredible and very east to navigate even for a stupid American like myself. It’s half flee market half new goods market, and literally the largest shopping place I’ve ever been. I was really impressed how much relevant and on american trend so much of the stuff was. A lot of really cool stuff, plus a couple of really hard looking market cats.
The rest of my time here will be work in dark room so I’m afraid that’s all the fun I get. Which for a work trip with me is probably a record I have no hope of breaking.
